SAILING

BOOK-MARK-NO-BORDER

Come Sail Mui Ne Bay With Us!

Water sports in Mui Ne Bay is not just about kitesurfing and windsurfing. Try your hand at sailing a Hobie beach catamaran- take a lesson, rent, or take a tour of Mui Ne Bay with our instructor.
Going sailing in light winds is a great introduction to getting out on the water, since much of the information you pick up is transferable to other water sports. Whether you are interested in kitesurfing or windsurfing, learning to sail first will help prepare you with important background awareness for wind effects, balance, and power control.

Why Catamarans?

We chose the Hobie Bravo and Wave because they are simple to use and provide loads of fun for beginners and experienced sailors alike. They are generally faster than mono hulls, yet easy to handle. This gives the best combination of fun, speed, and ease of learning.
